Sharing Europe festival

[Brussels, 15 May 2018] We are delighted to be Content Partners for the Sharing Europe festival, organised by the European Movement International and held in The Hague to mark the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Congress of Europe.

Just as in 1948, Europe is at a crossroad, facing challenges of existential nature. 70 years ago Europeans from all sides of society and from across the political spectrum gathered at The Hague to work towards a united and democratic future for our continent. The Sharing Europe festival is an opportunity to once again bring together citizens from across Europe to reinvigorate European dialogue in search of answers to our common challenges.

At such a time, it should not fall only upon our political leaders to present their political vision; the people of Europe should be given the opportunity to have their voice heard. Therefore, we hope you will join us for two days of inspiring debates and visions for the future of Europe that we share.

On the Sharing Europe website you will be able to register and read more about the event and the programme and find out about the lead-up that is happening all over Europe.

Where: The Hague, The Netherlands
When: Thursday 24 - Friday 25 May 2018

To mark the 70th anniversary of The Hague Congress the European Movement is gathering together citizens movements from across Europe, stakeholders representing society at large, political parties, academia, business, trade unions, youth organisations, local government, environmental movements etc.. We want to recreate the spirit of 1948, gather in a sense of optimism and purpose to discuss and debate the future direction Europe needs to take to meet the social, economic, environmental and geopolitical challenges of our time.

The two-day festival will put citizens at the centre of debates, open spaces for constructive dialogue, especially about topics that currently divide Europe. It will engage beyond these divides and contribute to building the future together.
